A milquetoast young man of society toughens up once he's shanghaied and falls for the captain's tomboy daughter.
There wre other changes made to the plot as well: in the original novel, Captain Kitchell goes down with the Lady Letty, the villainous group are Chinese pirates, and Moran is actually killed by Hoang, the pirate leader, and Kitchell 's ship breaks loose and goes out to sea where it sinks just as Ross Wilbur arrives. It's unkown why these changes were made for the film version, but, possibly because the plot would've violated the Hays act, the film was never remade.
Except for Dorothy Dalton, whose name appears on the title frame, actors were not credited in this movie at the start or at the end. Instead, 7 additional actors and their character names are credited in the intertitles right before they appear onscreen and are listed in the same order in the IMDb cast. All other actors are marked uncredited.
In 2006, Flicker Valley copyrighted a 68-minute version with a musical score by 'Robert Israel (II)'. The source material was from the Daniel J. Bursik collection. New intertitles were used, which may have changed some of the actors' names. In the New York Times review of 6 February, 1922, for example, Valentino's given name is listed as "Rodolf."
